Easy Access to Commonly Prescribed Medications at UrgentMED
At UrgentMED, we have a team of board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare providers at each center to ensure you receive quality care when and where you need it. We can write prescriptions for many conditions, just as any primary care physician can. Whether you need a healing salve for a skin infection, an oral antibiotic for the stomach flu, medicated eye drops for conjunctivitis, or another common medication, you can usually find it in our on-site medication center.
Here are some of the prescription and non-prescription medications you can find at UrgentMED urgent care centers.
Prescription antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections. These prescriptions are among the most commonly prescribed drugs aimed at preventing or fighting the disease-causing bacteria from reproducing, eliminating them completely. We offer antibiotics to treat skin infections, ear infections, strep throat, urinary tract infections, and certain sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs).
Having access to these common antibiotics ensures that you can start to feel better faster. No need to wait days or weeks for an appointment with your primary care doctor! At UrgentMED, you can receive your medications at our facility.
Eye drops are one of the commonly prescribed medications at UrgentMED. Our onsite medical store stocks antibiotic eye drops to treat conditions like dry eye, bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye), and some other eye infections.
Medications for Stomach/Gastrointestinal Conditions
We offer prescribed drugs for common complaints such as acid reflux, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and mild food poisoning. These medications are available in-house, and our experienced staff can help you choose the right medication for your condition. We also offer a wide range of over-the-counter medications, so you can be sure to find the right treatment for your particular case.
For example, if you are experiencing symptoms of food poisoning, some mint tea or other home remedies will not be enough. At UrgentMED, we can not only assist in diagnosing the root cause of your condition but also provide easy access to common medications to treat it without the need to stop at a pharmacy on the way home.
Short-Term Pain Relief
If you have experienced a minor sprain, strain, or injury that is causing you pain, UrgentMED can help! After our highly-trained medical team diagnoses the type of injury and answers all of your questions, we can send you home with common medications that can help ease your discomfort. Whether it’s a severe case that requires a steroidal medication to address the swelling or high-dose ibuprofen, we likely carry it in-house so that you can save time and avoid making another stop before heading home.
We also offer topical analgesics to manage the pain associated with cuts and burns.
Common Medication for Viruses
UrgentMED offers a wide range of medications to help treat common viruses, such as the flu or Herpes simplex virus (HSV). While we are not a pharmacy, we do have many prescription and nonprescription medications onsite that can help ease your symptoms and make you more comfortable.
Non-Prescription Medications (Over-the-Counter)
Our onsite medical stores also carry several OTC medicines that you get without a prescription from a doctor. These are often convenient in treating issues like cold, flu, nausea, itching, headaches, allergy symptoms, and minor aches and pains.
